Alfred Wertheimer. Elvis and the Birth of Rock and Roll

Extraordinary in its intimacy and scope, Alfred Wertheimer’s Elvis Presley portfolio immortalized the singer on the brink of superstardom. A jewel for any Elvis fan, this Collector’s Edition, signed by Wertheimer, brings together remarkable shots of the singer from 1956 and 1958. Nearly half of these photographs have never been published before.

This Collector’s Edition of just 1,706 numbered copies signed by Wertheimer brings together his most remarkable Elvis shots from 1956, along with a selection of his historic 1958 pictures of the star being shipped off to an army base in Germany. Though many of Wertheimer’s photos of Elvis are among the best known, nearly half of the photographs in this book have never been published before.

Each chapter is illustrated with an original poster created for this book by Hatch Show Print, one of the oldest letterpress print shops in America. In business since 1879

Hatch printed posters for vaudeville, circuses, and entertainers on world tour in the early 20th century; and created many of the powerful woodblock images that helped define the look of country music in the 1940s and rock and roll (including many early Elvis posters) in the ’50s. Fans of photojournalism, portraiture, and, of course, the King himself will covet this collector’s volume.
